Question about Sony Handycam DCR-HC21 Mini DV Digital Camcorder
When I playback what I have recorded, there are gray thick lines across the video.
Someone here recommended on another post to put the lense cap on &
videotape the blackness in a quiet room for 5-10 mins. I tried this as
a last resort & it worked. When I played back the tape, no more
skipping or gray lines. I had 4-5 SOLID gray lines with skipping video
& audio in between on every tape I put in. The person who
helped me solve this said: "the speed isn't linked with the last time you recorded on it. Frames
have an A/B part to them. If A is hitting B instead of A, a line
appears. I would try the head cleaner first, then blacken your used
tape (keep lens cap on and record in a quiet room) and try that."
My camera is a Canon zr80 digital camcorder. (Called Canon, they had me reset it & then recommended sending it in).

The heads may be dirty or damaged. Try replacing them or using a head cleaning tape, available wherever the camera or tapes are sold.
Hope this helps :)
